Something else that anyone can do is to contribute to the Co-op
Bank/Smile/CIS new Ethical Policy consultation at

There is a space at the end of the questionaire for "Any other issues".
I wrote this comment (which could easily be improved, I am sure):

"Please consider a specific statement promoting the development and use
of Free (as in freedom, not price)/Libre/Open Source software. This is
already implied in "Justice and Labour Rights -encourage the promotion
of co-operative enterprises" and "Corporate Governance - challenge
companies to have strong safeguards against fraud, bribery and
corruption". Additionally, support the use of Free software (eg
Linux/Mozilla) on Co-operative Bank/Smile/CIS websites rather than just
MicroSoft monopoly technology (Windows/Internet Explorer)."
